Album Review

Out of all of Madonna's albums, Like a Prayer is her most explicit attempt at a major artistic statement. Even though it is apparent that she is trying to make a "serious" album, the kaleidoscopic variety of pop styles on Like a Prayer is quite dazzling. Ranging from the deep funk of "Express Yourself" and "Keep It Together" to the haunting "Oh Father" and "Like a Prayer," Madonna displays a commanding sense of songcraft, making this her best and most consistent album.

Customer Reviews

Classic

If at the time there was a need to quiet the critics and the hecklers who wished for Madonna's demise - this album showed she was staying put for a long-time!! The title track - is a classic pop track - a favourite for many. The rest of the alubum spawned others classic pop tracks such as Cherish, Oh Father, Express Yourself and Dear Jessie. All accompanied by classic videos. Orginally released as a frankincense scented cd, Madonna showed her versatily of voice, song-writing and all round creativity. It's great album - If you only have a few Madonna album - this has to be one of them.

Brilliant!!

Classic album - but wheres the original version of Express Yourself?? Included here is the 12" mix which is not as good as the original album version. It doesnt really fit on the album if you listen to it all at once and sticks out like a sore thumb Go out and buy this on CD. Or even second hand vinyl! You will hear it properly then!

Madonna, Like a Prayer

Right, if anybody doesn't remember the publicity surrounding the release of the single by the same name then you were either a) not born yet (you are let off, but should research) or b) on another planet. The brilliant "Like a Prayer" is emotional and thought provoking, "Express Yourself" taught a whole new generation to do something their parents could only dream of, whilst "Cherish" shows Madonna's more human side. Don't miss "Keep it Together" either, reminding us all how important family really are. Worth it simply because contained in the sleeve was the first time I had been educated about HIV/AIDS. Well done Madonna.

After stars reach a certain point, it's easy to forget what they became famous for and concentrate solely on their personas. Madonna is such a star. She rocketed to stardom so quickly in 1984 that it obscured most of her musical virtues. Appreciating her music became even more difficult as the decade wore on, as discussing her lifestyle became more common. However, one of Madonna's greatest achievements is how she has manipulated the media and the public with...
